Hi All

TUG admin have very kindly allowed me to post this request.

I'm looking for good quality pictures of all the Marriott Vacation Club Resorts for a project I'm undertaking.

I'm prepared to remunerate all budding photographers for any images that I end up using so, if you think you've taken any great snaps that capture the nature and feel of the resorts, please message me here and we can take it from there.

Thanks!

Can you give us an idea of your project, what it is and how pictures will be used for it?

Hi Susan. I've sent you a PM to avoid this thread getting unwieldy and turning into a Q&A. (All Q's are very welcome...I just don't want to turn this into an off topic discussion as, strictly speaking, it's not about Marriott Timesharing and TUG admin have been kind enough as it is).

note this is not something sponsored or affiliated with TUG in any way, i merely said it was ok for him to ask as long as he was upfront with what he was using the pictures for (and not asking for personal info etc)

But I think others (including me) would like to hear the answer to Susan's question.


And thanks Brian for posting here also...

So if its not about Marriott timesharing, why are you asking specifically for Marriott Timeshare pictures? Also, if I'm going to share pictures from my personal library that may include pics of my family, I want to know what your purpose and intend is.

Thanks for the questions.

I'm not asking for any personal pictures at all, I'm only looking for pictures of the resorts. I'm not in the slightest bit interested in anything that would show individuals, TUGers or infringe on anyone's privacy. Far from it.

My understanding is that this forum was designed and intended for the discussion of people's experiences with Marriott Timeshares and I do not want to detract from that in any way. My request for pictures does not add value to anyone's Marriott timesharing experience and the request is only posted in this forum because it's where the Marriott audience is.

Brian has been kind enough to allow me to post my request here and I have no intention of misusing that kind permission hence I' happy to answer all and any questions via PM.

I hope that helps. Like I said, please feel free to PM if there's more you'd like to know.

I am not sure how upfront "a project I'm undertaking" really is though. Kinda short on details.

I'm genuinely sorry you feel that way. I'm offering to be as upfront as I know how to without breaking any TUG rules. I've answered each and every person that's PM'd me with EXACTLY what this all about as I believe that's the correct forum in which to explain myself. I fully understand skepticism...its to be expected (I'd probably be skeptical too) but that's no reason for me to be disrespectful to TUG by violating it's rules.

So your saying by telling us what you're doing it would break TUG rules?

certainly failed to mention that to me in our email discussion.

You still have failed to give any public details of what your project is about. Sound like what you are doing is shady if you can't post publicly about it. Sorry, you have lost my interest and potential support.

Nice emoticon...very appropriate :)

I've PMed Brian with the full details of the project and asking for clarification on what I can and cannot say/do on here. Following that I expect this thread will either be closed or I'll have his permission to carry on....let's see which one it is.

Either way, a big thank you to everyone who's PMed me and contributed pictures....it really is appreciated. Thanks! :)

Well, if it all ends up cool, I have tons of great shots of Frenchman's Cove in St. Thomas; along with shots of the REEF and MORNINGSTAR there as well.

Its been 2 days since I messaged TUG admin with full details of my project and this thread is still up. I haven't had any instructions that anything I've done is wrong or that I've broken any TUG rules (which is what I was trying to ensure in the first place) so I'm going to take that all to mean that I can carry on with my request.

In addition, I PMd a few of the skeptics and naysayers on this thread with full details of my project (also 2 days ago) and they've been noticeably quiet as well...no response to the PMs and no response on here....so, again, I'm going to assume that they don't think I'm doing anything shady.

Anyway, back to the main point of this: if anyone has any really good pics of Marriott Timeshares that they'd consider selling I'd love to hear from you. Please message me on here for full details.

Thanks.
